En Route to La Cruz: Shipwreck Revisited, Nothing Much Else

We’re on our way to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle (“La Cruz”) after spending two restful days in Barra de Navidad. The time spent there was quiet and uneventful; we ddn’t do much, but we did have a couple of nice dinners on shore.

We visited Barra de Navidad on our way South late last January with additional crew members, Marc and Marci.  On our way into the harbor, we noticed a ship wrecked against the cliffs at the south of the bay. I mentioned it my blog post of January 31, 2016. Well, the ship is still there, but is apparetnly being dismantled, with a helicopter making trips in the mornings and evenings to drop off workers. It looks like its going to be a long job.

Our passage to La Cruz is about 130 nm and will take a little over 24 hours. We chose to leave this morning to miss some stronger winds near Cabo Corriente forecast for later this week. It looks like this will be mostly a motoring passage, with wind on the nose most of the way.

When we get to La Cruz, we’ll stop for a while to take care of some administrative work (like filing my taxes). Fortunately, Marc and Marci are going to be in town at the condo in Nuevo Vallarta and we’re looking forward to visiting them and catching up on life.

Boring post, I know. But the record needs to be kept complete and up to date.
